|Classic TV Comedy: ''Burns and Allen'' - (Episode Title: Teenage Girl Spends the Weekend)|
An episode of the early television comedy "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show". This episode is presumably from 26 April 1951, judging by the cast. Sweet, light, and with some moderate historical value (such as the brief reference to "jump records"). Complete with original commercials for Carnation Evaporated. Episode title is unclear, as the episode has been called both "Teenage Girl Spends the Weekend" and "Visiting Teenager"...

|1954 TV Episode - "The Buick Berle Show'' with guest Mickey Rooney|
A 1954 episode of Milton Berle's "The Buick-Berle Show", a variety series. In this episode, we have a sketche mocking canned laughter, Milton meeting a wacky teenager, a interestingly dated dancing sequence, scenes with Milton pretending to break his leg, and a special name-dropping opening song about television. Picture quality is bad. Obviously Buick's attempt at aiming at a well-endowed television audience...

A rather dated but enjoyable episode of "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show", aired 16 August 1951 over the CBS Television network (episode title: Space Patrol Kids Visit).
